Few agencies provide the service of a sleeping floor during the day. The Calgary Drop-In Centre offers Day Sleep, a daytime sleeping floor overseen by an Adult Care Worker. Day Sleep is available for two primary reasons. First, if a client is feeling a little under the weather with a cold or some other mild affliction, Day Sleep is available for them to get much needed additional rest during the day. The other reason our clients need to sleep during the day is that many of them are hard at work at overnight jobs. Anyone who has ever worked overnight understands how important, and challenging, it is to get a good sleep during the day. Motivation, productivity, and health all require a sufficient amount of sleep. Day Sleep is an important program that provides that service to our clients.
I am pretty impressed with the service provided by ESS especially when I consider the various circumstances beyond your control that you may have to contend with! It is a huge relief to NOT spend my time completing a bunch of forms every time I need casual labour or spend my money paying an employment service; I could not afford to do that!
What is really amazing to me is that is every bit as effective, and even more efficient in providing casual labour than the employment services that charge!
